As of 5:00 PM, all Walt Disney World Resort hotels have officially closed.
With the exception of the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin (of which only the Swan wing is open), all other Walt Disney World Resort hotels are now officially closed. The hotels were particularly quiet at the start of the week, with some select hotels having even closed down early for extensive cleaning and sanitation on a case-by-case basis, decided on by individual hotel management teams.
Up until today, resort guests were free to visit any of the other resorts on property, however they are now clearing the property of any remaining guests. All resort transportation concluded on March 18, with just Disney’s Magical Express running today to shuttle the last resort guests to Orlando International Airport.
While the all US parks and resorts are currently slated to reopen on April 1st, new state and federal regulations continue to hint at a delayed reopening. However, with The Walt Disney Company taking a huge financial toll with all of its parks closed, it’s likely looking to reopen as soon as it is safely possible to do so.
